Table Of Contents

Preview

The IPL has returned for its 17th season, and the fans are eager for the two-month spectacle to start. Ten teams will compete against each other and throw everything on the line in an attempt to win the coveted championship. Chennai Super Kings, the five-time champions, will play Royal Challengers Bangalore (CSK vs RCB) in the opening match of the tournament at the M.A. Chidambaram stadium in Chennai.

The Chennai Super Kings have been progressively replacing some of their top players with a few fresh guns since they detest making changes to their playing XI and squad. Two of the team’s biggest worries prior to the auctions were Ambati Rayudu’s retirement and the over reliance on Deepak Chahar as the key Indian fast bowler. To help Chahar with his bowling, they brought in Shardul Thakur, who is an accomplished player. Additionally, they brought in young players like Sameer Rizvi and Rachin Ravindra to bat. In addition to maybe bidding their captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, a fond farewell, the team would be looking for another outstanding campaign.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore had to make many changes to their lineup this season, spending a lot of money on foreign bowlers after cutting around 70% of their bowling unit before the 2024 Auctions. They expanded the roster to include players like Tom Curran, Alzarri Joseph, and Lockie Ferguson. Australian all-rounder Cameron Green was also signed by the team for INR 16.50 crore, which caused some fans to scoff. However, will the franchise’s fortunes change as a result of these changes? Time will only tell on that one.
